Build: 3.2.4308
Status: Pre-Release (Alpha)

This will be a quick release. We're keeping focus to increase compatibility and streamline launching of the clients.


  • Added OS X Mac Application Bundle client that has no dependencies other than a vanilla OS X install, including Lion and Mountain Lion (previously Lion and Mountain Lion required the user to install java)

    • pushes the menu options up to the native top bar to be more consistent with os x app design
    • runs as a single instance even for multiple session to be more consistent with os x app design
    • is launchable via url from host/guest page so it launches like mobile apps, not having to d/l a file each time

  • Added signed EXE clickonce runner for windows. Our only previous offering of an EXE was altered too much at launch-time for it to be signed. This one is signed in order to be more compliant with app deployment practices and avoid Anti-virus false positives
  • Several changes for consistency in naming and extending of customization

    • added ApplicationIcon48 and ApplicationIcon256 for use in windows icons, web start, and mac app bundles
    • renamed "guest service" to "client service"
    • commonized variations of our company name

  • fixed bad upgrade XSL that used the wrong resources key causing exception in web start and mac bundle launchers
  • added redirect for Elsinore.ScreenConnect.WindowsClient.application->Elsinore.ScreenConnect.Client.application
  • rebuild app bundle to target OS X 10.6+
  • replaced osx mono binary with one targeting OS X 10.6+
  • fixed zip file creator to not do 0 byte writes to stream because that choked ms.net 2.0
  • made launcher detect os x better for mac bundle and still deliver web start launcher to osx 10.5 and below

  • added missing bootstrap files to the installer ... last 3.2 build was broken because of this
  • rewrote most of the launcher ordering code to be a bit more simpler and maintainable
  • fixed java tray icon display
  • fixed naming of the EXE bootstrappers for IE because it didn't like EXE files with querystrings in urls
  • fixed installer bootstrapper so it won't try to install .NET 2.0 when .NET 4.0 is present without .NET 2.0
  • fixed java web start caching issues
  • fixed java web start JRE targeting issues in past 3.2 versions

  • fixed java message serialization so the participant->requestShare, participant->disconnect, participant->stopSharing commands work
  • made java client not scroll the scrollpane when using the arrows-- they're passed to the remote system now
  • added shift+join behavior to host page to allow choosing launcher and potentially other options in the future
  • made image upload button say "Upload PNG File" to be more descriptive of what we're looking for
  • made max size of image in the resources grid to be 64 pixels wide so the 256x256 one doesn't screw up the grid
  • made unattended windows installer bark if it is an upgrade but the product isn't installed. this is due to group policy installs being in a different installer universe and us getting into trouble when we try to upgrade them through our normal mechanism
  • added jar file handler confix XSL that should enable web start cache busting


I'm starting to really like this release ... Beta out soon.

  • fixed linux/mono so the administration tabs work (we broke it a few builds ago)
  • allotted more time for the client service to spawn user session client processes, as we encountered some machines that timed out under our previous 5 second timeout
  • reversed direction of java mouse wheel under non-osx. we had previously inverted it for osx which made it backwards for everything else.
  • fixed rc?.d error message when upgrading linux/mono
